    How to format your references using the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity citation style. This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Journal of Environmental a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript . This book discusses effects of radioactivity on the geological environment, emphasizing those aspects of the subject likely to be encountered by the geologists working in the field. It covers radioactive minerals, exploration, analytical methods, radioactivity and age dating, radioactive heat production and more.

    The environmental radioactivity monitoring throughout Greece is achieved through dif-ferent types of measurements (telemetric network, laboratory, in-situ) performed by GAEC and a network of collaborating laboratories. GAEC is responsible for the planning, . The basic goal of this book is to exarnine the complex state of radioactivity in the environment, including its sources and applications. In principle, there are two sources of environmental radioactivity, namely man­ made and natural. The authors of this book set out to analyze mainly empirie al aspects of the activities of both groups.

    Radioactive decay (also known as nuclear decay, radioactivity, radioactive disintegration or nuclear disintegration) is the process by which an unstable atomic nucleus loses energy by radiation.A material containing unstable nuclei is considered of the most common types of decay are alpha decay, beta decay, and gamma decay, all of which involve emitting one or more particles. The radioactivity of naturally occurring radionuclides of U, U, Th-series and 40 K in the sediment samples of the TE-NORM waste from Abu Rudeis region before fractionation (B.F.) and after fractionation (A.F.) are given in Table 4. The bulk waste was fractionated into nine homogeneous fractions with different particle sizes (Cited by:

Natural environmental radioactivity and the associated external exposure due to gamma radiation depend primarily on the geological and geographical conditions, as reported at different levels in the soils of different regions around the world [11, 12, 13].
